.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The potential for an outbreak of severe thunderstorms has
increased, mainly during the evening hours. Scattered
thunderstorms are forecast to move into southern Illinois and
southeast Missouri very late this afternoon or early this evening.
The storms are forecast to become numerous as they move east-
southeast across the entire region this evening.

Conditions will be favorable for large hail, possibly golf ball
size in the strongest storms. Locally damaging winds and a few
tornadoes will be possible. The Storm Prediction Center has placed
our region within an enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms.

Locally heavy rain could result in isolated flooding problems
apart from the ongoing river flooding. Refer to flood statements
for ongoing minor to moderate flooding on the Mississippi and
lower Ohio Rivers.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

A small chance of thunderstorms is forecast over much of the region
late Saturday night through Sunday evening. Locally heavy rainfall
and lightning will be the primary concerns.

Minor to moderate flooding will persist on the Mississippi and
lower Ohio Rivers.


Spotter activation will likely be requested this evening.
